Brentwoodian 2022

to be Essex Champions. Of course, no team is complete without contributions from the whole squad, especially the pinch-hitting Danyal Khan with an exceptional scoring rate of 97.83. This, as well as his express pace at the top of the bowling order at times, produced only fear in the opposition’s batsmen and I am sure Max Small behind the stumps as well. A final mention must go to Amar Dhanjal who had an outstanding season. With the ball, he was threatening and a menace, never letting batsmen settle, and with the bat a positive and forward-thinker who was determined not to let a bowler relax into their line and length. A great team player and another exciting prospect for Brentwood School Cricket. Jacob Wagner as the Captain did an outstanding job of managing the team and ensuring all contributed in some way so we thank him as well as Mr Giles, Mr Nolan and Mr Mickleburgh for the efforts both on and off the pitch. Fundamentally, whereas a few players have been mentioned, all contributions from every single squad player were invaluable to our success as Essex County U13 Champions. We worked hard, trained hard and played hard, making us a competitive outfit, and one hopefully that will bring more trophies home to where they belong. Thank you to the whole squad for a splendid and successful season which includes, Jacob Wagner, Jack Carpenter, Sidney Small, Danyal Khan, Amar Dhanjal, Christian Edinburgh, James Crothers, George Quick, William Crichton, Tommy Plackett, George Walker, Osaank Bhatt, Thomas Wiles, Bobby Harris, Anay Patel, Keiran Catherall.
